JHM Annual Clinical Awards for Physicians and Care Teams
At Johns Hopkins Medicine, our physicians, nurses, residents and other care team members represent the finest in clinical excellence. Whether our adult and pediatric patients come to us with highly complex or routine conditions, from local communities or around the globe, our clinicians consistently deliver expert, compassionate and research-based treatment and care.
Last fall, we issued a call for nominations in six award categories to once again recognize clinicians whose work has demonstrated consistent excellence. We applaud the nearly 300 clinicians whose peers took the time to place their names in nomination. After much deliberation, we’re proud to announce the 42 award recipients — six from each of our hospitals and our community practices in six categories.

We Are Happy to Announce...
A few weeks ago, we updated you on the development of a clinical promotion track and asked for your input on the proposal. Thank you to all who provided feedback, as well as to the many who participated along the way.
Last week, following a unanimous vote of support by the faculty senate, the Advisory Board of the Medical Faculty approved the creation of a clinical track in our promotions process, as well as the associated promotion criteria. We believe this step underscores our commitment to recognizing excellence across all parts of our tripartite mission.
Over the next few months, we will complete an implementation plan for this track, as well as modify the Gold Book to reflect this new opportunity. We anticipate rolling out the track in the coming year, and will continue to update you.
Many people have worked hard to bring us to this point. We want to thank everyone involved for their incredible effort, especially the leaders of our clinical track committee, David Eisele, Scott Wright and Cindy Rand.
We are confident this new clinical promotion pathway will recognize, reward and advance the careers of faculty whose primary academic focus, professional effort and time commitment is the delivery and teaching of clinically excellent patient care.
